Need a laugh? Burnside is at it again.

Some highlights: "Torn between his loyalty to MacLean and the need to right the ship, Lamoriello ultimately waited too long to dismiss MacLean. Lemaire returned by Christmas and helped orchestrate a spirited second-half comeback that left the Devils just short of a playoff spot." Quite a difference in the way he characterizes the MacLean firing now and the way he did at the time, huh? "Each new coach seems to bring the franchise closer and closer to irrelevancy; and yet, each new coach seemingly may be the one to turn the corner and bring the Devils back to glory." I don't quite get this one. What is Lou supposed to do if Lemaire retires, or Sutter or Robinson wants out? "Will DeBoer be that coach? One gets the feeling this may be Lamoriello's last chance to answer that question in the affirmative." And where I wonder, does Burnside get this idea from?
